Abstract:

VISTA was developed for counseling training as conducted by the Infantry Officers Basic Course IOBC. VISTA combines the training advantages of the microcomputer and the videodisc player to create a simulated counseling session. A problem or situation within the platoon requires counseling of a subordinate by a platoon leader. The student calls on his knowledge of counseling to decide what actions the televised platoon leader should employ. In doing so, the student is only a step away from real counseling. This manual is part of a work effort entitled Implementation of Videodisc Interpersonal Skills Training and Assessment VISTA. The manual applies only to the original VISTA hardware Apple II, Pioneer LDP-1000 videodisc player, etc., and consists of five sections Introduction, Equipment and Its Function Equipment Setup, Fine Tuning and Testing the System, and Troubleshooting. A description of the equipment and step-by-step instructions with illustrations for connecting the components are given to guide a person with minimal levels of expertise in electronics or computers. Procedures for testing and troubleshooting provide guidance for solving operational problems.
